Well I just got a call from the dry cleaners. Justin dropped off his jeans to have them altered. I know you're thinking-- that I could/should do that for him. But, I don't know how to do it without them looking like they've been altered. See what I mean? Well the guy asked if I wanted it done with a regular hem (you can tell they have been altered) or an original hem (with the original hem showing). Mind you the first option is $5 and the second is $25. I'm thinking he definitely wants them to look like they haven't been altered, but I'm cheap and don't want to pay $25 especially if I know I can sew (and when I know what he paid for them)! Well the guy is really nice and I told him I wish I knew how to do it! He said he talked to the alterations lady once a long time ago and she said that it used to be a secret how to do an original hem, but now the secret's out. Well I said I'd talk to the hubby and find out what he wants to do.
Then, of course, I google "original hem". Lo and behold there are like five tutorials/explanations on how to do it! I feel so smart! Although I'm totally not! I use google like everyone else. Thanks google! I think we should have a national day to celebrate google. Don't you?
Here's the link of how to do an original hem in case you wanted to know the secret too!!
